{Story via Port City Daily}

More than 200 young golfers made their way to the Nicklaus Course at Country Club of Landfall (CCL) in Wilmington on Thursday to compete in the Carolinas PGA sectional Drive, Chip & Putt qualifier. The event was one of 12 local contests being held across the Carolinas this summer for boys and girls ages 7-15. The top three finishers from the four different age groups punched a ticket to the sub-regional round at Fort Jackson Golf Club in Fort Jackson, South Carolina on Saturday, August 27.

New Phone System

Over the next two weeks, the section office will be converting to a new phone system, Ring Central, which is more cost effective and also links directly to PGA headquarters staff.  Please bear with us during this process as some staff extensions may be down briefly during the transition.  If you cannot contact a staff member via phone, please try to e-mail the staff member and we will respond as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience and understanding!


Happy 4th of July!

Wishing you all a Happy 4th of July from the Carolinas PGA Section! HQ will be closed for the holiday on Monday and will reopen at 8AM Tuesday, July 5. We hope everyone enjoys their long weekend on the golf course!
